Oakland A’s Brent Rooker set to show off his skills against the KC Royals in weekend clash

Brent Rooker, a former KC Royals player now with the Oakland A’s, is expected to challenge his former team this weekend. Royals fans may remember Rooker’s brief and disappointing stint in Kansas City, but he has since thrived with the A’s, making a serious impact since his trade. With 10 homers and 28 RBIs in 34 games this season, Rooker comes into the series in great shape and has an impressive track record against the Royals.

In numbers

  • Rooker hit .281 with a .365 OBP this season.
  • He has 10 home runs and 28 RBIs in 34 games.
  • Rooker hit 30 home runs and drove in 69 runs in 137 games last season.

State of play

  • Rooker is currently a designated hitter for the A’s.
  • The Royals are facing poor performance on the field this season.

And after

Rooker’s hot streak suggests he could have a significant impact on the Royals during this series. Fans should watch closely to see if he continues to haunt his former team and further complicates Kansas City’s efforts to celebrate its historic 2014 AL pennant victory.


The Royals’ decision to part ways with Rooker could continue to backfire as he thrives with the A’s, which could deal another blow to his former team this weekend and highlight Kansas City’s current struggles on field.
